Installing and using the app for the camera was also simple. The app is easy to use and the camera has it’s own WiFi so the connection is quite simple.
Once in the air, the quality of the camera was not very impressive. I had known that from the start and really didn’t have reason to expect a top notch camera from an entry level drone but nevertheless, I was a bit disappointed.
I am a first time drone pilot so had quite a learning curve and a lot of fun with this item. I depended heavily on the instructions and I would give them a B. I could understand them but they could have been better written.
The durability of this craft blows me away. I didn’t count the crashes but there certainly were many and none of them resulted in any damage at all.
Calibrating was a bit frustrating and in retrospect, doing it inside my home probably made it more difficult than it would have been in a wider open area. Possibly I expected too much fine tuning from the drone but it did not always go the direction that I expected it to, or wanted it to. There were frequent crashes, possibly related to pilot error.
This quadcopter comes with every thing you need to fly including a screw driver and extra props 1 battery and charger also includes a WIFI camera That sends the video from the quadcopter to your phone You must download the syma app to be able to view on your phone.
